'The Vampire Diaries' at PaleyFest: Eight things we learned (the love triangle isn't over yet!) -- VIDEO

If the Vampire Diaries PaleyFest panel proved anything, it’s that this cast and crew are total professionals when working in front of screaming fans. (After five years, they’re used to it.) Luckily, we were able to cut through the excitement and pull out some delicious tidbits about what’s to come for the rest of season 5.

Hear are eight things we took away from executive producers Caroline Dries and Julie Plec, and cast members Paul Wesley (Stefan), Nina Dobrev (Elena), and Ian Somerhalder (Damon).

Kevin Bacon re-creates 'Footloose' dance on 'The Tonight Show' -- VIDEO


When Jimmy Fallon took over the Tonight Show, he enacted some new (imaginary) rules.

“Dancing has been outlawed here at the Tonight Show,” he solemnly announced on Friday’s episode. He pulled out the official proclamation and stated, “It’s a bummer, but rules are rules.”

That didn’t fly with his guest, Kevin Bacon, whose classic film Footloose is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

“Dancing is illegal?” asked an incredulous Bacon, sitting backstage. “This is the Tonight Show. There has to be dancing!”


'Mad Men' at PaleyFest: Five things we (sort of) learned

Most casts show up at PaleyFest prepared to tease at least a few upcoming plot points.

But most casts aren’t governed by Matt Weiner.

The notoriously tight-lipped but charismatic stars of Mad Men bravely took the stage Friday night to dodge moderator Michael Schneider’s questions. Let’s just put it this way — you could glean more information from one of the show’s infamous Next Week on Mad Men teases.

Here are five tidbits we learned from Weiner, Jon Hamm (Don Draper), Christina Hendricks (Joan Harris), Elisabeth Moss (Peggy Olson), Jessica Paré (Megan Draper), Vincent Kartheiser (Pete Cambell), Kiernan Shipka (Sally Draper), and Robert Morse (Bertram Cooper).


'Scandal': We need to talk about [spoiler's] death -- POLL

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the March 20 episode of Scandal, stop reading now!

I want to start this thing on the right foot, so in honor of full disclosure, I will admit that at the end of last week’s Scandal, I wanted James to die. Well, I didn’t want him to die, but if it came down to him and David, I was hoping that James would be the one to go. It wasn’t anything against the character — I actually love James and think Dan Bucatinsky is ridiculously talented — but I knew it would create a more interesting arc if James were the one to go. What was the alternative? Watching Abby walk around all depressed about David’s death? Yeah, I wasn’t feeling it.

So, the good side of Thursday night’s horrendous death was that I, more or less, got my wish. However, 60 minutes later, I wanted to take it all back. I don’t know about you all, but watching James’ first meeting with Cyrus and being reminded how great and complicated their relationship was, made me miss James before he was cold in his grave. Other than Olivia’s romantic adventures, Cyrus and James really had the only other relationship we were invited to be invested in. Sure, I love Abby and David, but we don’t get nearly as much insight into them as we did with Cyrus and James. Their late-night fights and incredibly unhealthy dynamic always made for pretty incredible television.

Also, as Olivia once put it, Cyrus is the president’s attack dog, and the only place where we fully got to see his softer side was through his love for his husband. Without James, I’m worried that Cy will go too far. And I really don’t want to dislike Cy. I’m not saying I will, but without those glimpses to his softer side, there’s the potential for that character to do something truly unforgivable. It’s not that Cy hasn’t done truly unforgivable things in the past, but at least we got to see him regret his actions and repent for them. Now what? Whom will he go crying to? Here’s hoping it’s Olivia with a bottle of wine in hand.

Putting the future aside, at the end of Thursday night’s episode, we were forced to watch James take his last breath. Because Jake had to make it look like a carjacking, he had to be sloppy, which meant James suffered. And in his final moments, James was most worried about his daughter. I think this was the first time in my life that I said, “Yay!” when a character was shot and then regretted saying it less than an hour later as I cried my eyes out.

James might not have been as much a part of the fold as David was at times, but I’m going to miss that man. And his absence also makes me very, very worried about what’s going to happen to his daughter. All I know is that David and Olivia better take down B-613, because I can’t handle anymore emotional whiplash of this sort.

Late Night Highlight: Enrique Iglesias teaches Andy Cohen how to seduce a woman (hint: dance!) -- VIDEO

Enrique Iglesias can be your hero, baby. He can kiss dance away the pain. At leas,t that’s what he taught Andy Cohen when the singer stopped by Watch What Happens Live Thursday.

When asked how to seduce a woman, Iglesias suggested dancing — and, of course, letting the woman feel around a bit. The result? Cohen actually picking up a lady, and other visuals you never thought you’d see.

Check out our late night highlight below:


'Reign' react: How much is that candle in the window?

Welcome back to France, where being a royal is as difficult as it is sexy, and there are two ways to die: Either The Darkness gets you, or Henry kills you after (or during) sex. I don’t know about you all, but if I had to go, I would choose option B every time (and maybe twice). Then again, The Darkness only kills those who see it, so perhaps I would just shut my eyes and go hang out with Leith. But enough about me, let’s get down to business! READ FULL STORY

'Scandal' behind the scenes: Josh Malina explores the art of voice-over -- VIDEO

PopWatchers, you better hope David Rosen doesn’t get ganked in tonight’s episode of Scandal. Because we’re pretty sure that would mean Josh Malina’s amazing behind-the-scenes video series, Josh Cam, would go on indefinite hiatus.

And we’re certain our lives would be much sadder without this inside peek into the show behind the show. Take this week’s edition for example — in it, Malina takes us into a recording booth where we meet the people behind Scandal‘s so-called ADR (short for automated dialogue replacement). Basically, as Malina explains in the video, it’s voice acting that replaces the audio captured during filming on set. Take a look:  READ FULL STORY

Throwback Thursday: What's your favorite TV or movie proposal? -- VIDEO

Today is a very busy day. For starters, it’s Throwback Thursday. But it’s also the first day of spring and, wait for it, National Proposal Day! So, it only seemed fitting that I kill two birds with one stone — I refuse to celebrate spring until it’s warm outside — and throw it on back to my favorite movie/TV proposal of all time.

If asked, most women can tell you at least a little something about their dream proposal. Maybe there’s a path of rose petals involved, or perhaps they’re a fan of the sporting event jumbotron. Then there’s the secret photographers, and the flashmobs, and the rings being hidden in desserts. But for me, I can trace my perfect proposal back to 2007, when the movie Stepmom made me cry like a baby.

Before the tears started, there was a great proposal scene between Ed Harris and Julia Roberts. In it, Harris woke Roberts up with a kiss, and as they both sat in bed in their pajamas, he gave her a spool of thread. After tying it around her finger during a speech about marriage being a tough commitment, he put a ring on the other end of the thread and slid it down onto her finger.

'Archer': Download wallpaper featuring the ISIS team -- EXCLUSIVE IMAGE

Was it easy to photograph the entire cast of Archer for a feature about the hit FX show in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly? Not really. Were we surprised when they arrived with an ocelot, a literal ton of cocaine, and several boxes of the now-available-to-buy eponymous album from Cherlene? Yes, absolutely. Did a large quantity of the aforementioned cocaine disappear down the gullet of a certain ISIS human resources director in the course of the shoot? We’re going to have to take the Fifth on that.
